These two graphs offer an interesting comparison of the growth in wages in G7 nations between two different time periods.

The first graph looks at the years 2000-2007. For several countries, wages fluctuated year by year with small increases followed by equally small falls in income. For example, Italy saw slight increases of just below 0.5% in 2000 and 2001, followed by falls of a similar amount in 2002 and 2003, before picking up again in 2005, 2006 and 2007 with rises of around 2%, 1 % and 0.5% respectively. In comparison, the UK, the USA and Canada witnessed wage growth in most years, with the UK hitting almost 5% in 2000.

2005 was the only year when a slight fall was registered. These figures contrast sharply with those shown in the graph for 2008-2012, particularly for the UK and the USA. During this period in the UK, four of the five years witnessed wage decreases of between 1.5% to over 2%. Similarly, wage increases in the USA were smaller, with two years showing slight falls.

The figures seem to reflect the changing economic conditions that emerged following the financial crisis of 2007 and suggest that this had a significant impact on wages, particularly in the UK and USA.
